If you have branded Card i would go for drivers from manufactor.

i have Diamond Viper and the Diamond Drivers are much faster then generic Nvidia Detonator.

I absolutely couldn't agree more. I can't even begin to add up the hours playing Sim Copter and streets of sim City as a kid. Not to mention using Sim City 2000 to make cities to fly and drive through. I've recently introduced my 5 year old son to my collection of Maxis games and right now Sim Safari is his favorite.

I make bank in SimCopter, by dropping them just enough to require medevac, I also of course love the Apache for dealing with criminals.
